There is no such thing as a short-term sustainability plan.
European FLAP +D data center operators are asking: How can I meet my sustainability and business targets? The answer is ensuring long term ROI.
Sustainable business is good business. Sustainability and economics cannot be seen to negatively impact the bottom line.
Losses are not acceptable.
The sustainability credentials of infrastructure must provide measurable ROI benefits in financial and environmental terms. This covers energy efficiency, reliability, space, and waste along with suitability for using new energy sources for changing loads from the edge to the cloud. For ESG and compliance, a sustainable power infrastructure strategy can only exist within commercial realities. That means being measurable.
This session will explore the new power dynamics for European data centre operators in search of long term sustainable and business ROI.
